I won't be available for commission work for many months. I'll be in Panama from March 10th until mid April, and expect to be in Ecuador until mid June. 

I'll be volunteering as a field and personal assistant for a herpetologist in El Cope, Panama for a month. Ecuador will again focus on photography and exploring other possibilities, ranging from collaborations, to research.

I'm hoping after both trips, that I'll be in a better position not long after focus on artwork again. I wish to work in ceramics as soon as I can get lessons. I have always longed to work in clay and combine my passion for nature, science and sculpting - in one!

I have been hard at work on my Wordpress blog - check it out here:

I'm currently 26, living in beautiful Washington State.

Recently, I've been going through another very different and interesting stage of my life. I'm finding that my views on many aspects of life are shifting...and I am quite pleased with this! I hope that I'll make more time for illustrated/painted art, as it's still something I am very passionate about. My latest project involves a deepening understanding of photography (nature photography, primarily) which is a love that has sort of caught on fire over the past year.

I'm finding that I don't relate to a lot of my old art, and realize it was more of a therapy for me over the years that I struggled for something like inner peace...and I'm eager to produce new stuff that I find has more meaning and meat to both the world at large, and myself. The constantly changing me!

I'm currently more of a hobbyist when it comes to art (a self-taught student of sorts) but I have aspirations for art on a professional level and try to be rigorous in my studies!

do you know much stuff about spiders? If you do, do you know if jumping spiders are native in Alaska because I saw one in my house but i didn't think they lived here.
P.S. It was adorable and I have never said that about a spider before.

I'm glad to hear you feel this way about a spider. It was the same way for me! (although I had been terrified of was only in keeping a jumping spider for a pet that I lost my fear)

Next time you see one, please take a photo! I'd be happy to ID it. I'll have to do some research about what salticid species may live there. Really cool!
